    I am wondering if anyone has seen this problem, I have not updated my remote to the latest firmware 1.7.4 until today, but right after doing so I was flying, draining down some batteries but, right after take off with 60% of battery power in the tank, immediately the copter when into critical battery error and started to drop. It did the for three different batteries.

    I am wondering if any one has seen this, and if so what is the solution. My current firmware for the inspire is at 1.8.1 I am wondering if I up it to 1.9 if that will make the problem go away. Any thoughts, thanks

    Batteries that sit charged and not used for awhile will lose it's power. Also charge your batteries day before or day of when flying. Doing this will not cause you problems.

    This is a self selected feature in the DJI GO app -- you set the dormant time before the batteries start to discharge. I believe the dormant time is 10 days by default.

    Recently I had a two month session of travel without the Inspire, and during that time the batteries discharged to about 50%. This is what I expected, and does so to protect the batteries. FWIW, I would never fly on batteries that had not seen a charger in more than 48 hours.

    Batteries were not fully charged I was actually charging them down, but in the middle of my discharging the batch of 5, I upgraded the controller firmware to 1.7.4 and that is when my problem started and I saw it happen on three know to be good batteries with over 50% charge. I then upgraded the copter to 1.9 and now I have not seen that problem.
